Adjacent to Kent Railway Station, the Horgan’s Quay project will not only create an entirely new Cork streetscape and river-fronted pedestrian plaza but aims to help kick-start the €1bn redevelopment of the city’s sprawling docklands.

The Horgan’s Quay development in Cork by Clarendon and BAM has been described as a “game changer” for the manner in which it restored and integrated railway buildings dating from the 1850s into a lavish modern project featuring office space for 5,000 workers, a 136-bedroom hotel and 237 apartments

Alan Healy, in the Evening Echo, in Cork, reports that a man and a woman were separately convicted for animal welfare offences last week.

The woman was fined €100, while the man was fined €200 and ordered to give the ISPCA an additional €200.

Mr Healy reported:

On January 17, ISPCA Inspector Lisa O’Donovan visited the woman’s property in response to a call to the ISPCA Helpline.

She seized a collie pup, approximately five months old, tied to an oil tank with no shelter [pictured above]…A vet later described the pup as “severely underweight”.

This morning.

At the offices of Abtran in Mahon, Cork.

Staff were evacuated after two members of staff working in the mail receiving centre of the offices sustained “symptoms of skin irritation” – after “suspected hazardous material” was reportedly sent to the centre.

Staff have since returned to the building and Abtran has released a statement saying “nothing suspect has been found”.
